This brief–part of the Aligning Systems for Health’s Making Aligning Work series–captures themes, lessons, and trends around the adaptive factors of aligning systems including trust, community voices, power dynamics, and equity.
This brief concludes that mapping the states of aligning may overly simplify the interconnection among the core components and adaptive factors by assuming that these elements are either fully in place or not.

This series mines the experience of catalysts, researchers, and funders who have been involved with efforts to align the three sectors through quarterly interviews (fall 2019 through spring 2021). These interviews with 10 selected experts are anchored around the cross-sector alignment theory of change. Following the structured interviews, participants are invited to a virtual, sense-making teleconference with GHPC researchers to assess the emerging themes across the 10 conversations.
Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and managed by the Georgia Health Policy Center, is focused on learning from stakeholders across the nation about effective ways to align these three sectors to better meet people’s goals and needs.
